THE GREG JACKSONPLATA FOR MMA AND THE FINER POINTS OF GROUND N' POUND.
Grappler, I know you come here to check out funky inverted sweeps and out-of-the-box strangulations and joint manipulations (rhyme intended). Occasionally, you'll join me in mocking professional BJJer's hairstyles and poor montage music choices for their highlight reels (among other things). We're cut from the same cloth, you and I. At the end of the day, we all just want to train Jiu Jitsu at the expense of our personal lives and careers and get really, really good at it. Amen.
But, there's apparently more to life than that, and sometimes it involves punching and elbowing dudes from the guard and mount positions. I'm talking about MMA stuff, and no one is better at coaching worldwide that Greg Jackson. I don't train MMA, but I definitely enjoyed watching Greg walk a group of seminar goers at Evolve MMA (Singapore) through his MMA version of the omoplata and the basics of ground n' pound. Scientific!
Oh, and Shinya Aoki's his training dummy/partner. That's gotta worth something. Go.
